Elizabeth Barbalich, founding director & creator of international green beauty brand Antipodes (NZ), has a background in pure science, so she's a firm believer in the importance of scientifically validating her organic beauty products.
Antipodes Scientific Organic Beauty has found the answer to anti-aging in New Zealand nature. The carefully selected bioactive native plant extracts & nutrient-rich avocado oil create skincare products that are scientifically & clinically shown to help promote youthful skin - they promote the production of elastic, Type I and Type III collagen at a cellular level*.
Antipodes is a science-based company & has invested years into research & development with top experts to create high-performance anti-ageing products. Each and every product has been carefully formulated from selected pure ingredients from nature.
The company devoted to their home, Aotearoa New Zealand - an exotic, fresh & exciting Antipodean nation. Therefore their green beauty ethos is based on full traceability of ingredients from sustainably cultivated plants, local productions & recyclable packaging.
Antipodes is strong on limiting human exposure to synthetic chemicals & limiting human effect on the environment, so the products are natural, some are certified organic and all are vegan approved.
Many products in the Antipodes range have received international awards for performance, but Elizabeth is also often complimented on the brand's creativity: the poetic names of products, the enticing mixes of exotic natural fragrances & the beautiful packaging design. She says her daily work inspiration is simply what it's been from the very start, back in 2006: “A desire to create premium scientifically validated organic beauty products from fully sustainable sources which can be used every day by everyday women".
Her pure, honest skincare that delivers outstanding results has found favour with women of all ages right around the world: Antipodes is now sold in 10 countries & some 300 stores throughout its homeland New Zealand. International retailers include Whole Foods Market, Selfridges, Sephora, Fenwick in the UK. On Antipodes' celebrity clients-list - the movie-stars Evangeline Lilly, Cate Blanchett, super-models Elle Macpherson, Cara Delevingne and Georgia May Jagger, artist Sam Smith.
Spring flowers, dew-scented air, rainforest freshness, star-filled summer nights in the New Zealand countryside...you’ll find a heavenly mix of oils exuding beautiful natural fragrances whenever you lift an Antipodes lid. Developing new & magical perfumes is a highly anticipated process at the Antipodes apothecary.
